If there is such a thing as a Do-It-All bike, the Search XR Aluminum is definitely it. This slick, hardy adventure-seeker blurs “traditional” bike categories by trancends what you can expect from a gravel bike.
With a lightweight alloy adventure frame, generous tire clearance and rack, fender and bottle mounts, the Search XR thrives off the beaten path and opens every ride up to whatever road or trail your imagination or topographic map takes you.
Smooth welded, lightweight aluminum frame creates a robust, elegant looking adventure rig. Bent chain stays, thinned seat tube and top tube, and optimized fork designs maximize comfort and reduce rider fatigue.
Designed to excel on rougher surfaces, Search XR geometry is a little slacker and longer than conventional road bikes for a confident ride.
Front and rear thru-axles, oversized downtube, BB shell and chainstays deliver lateral stiffness for maximum power transfer and control over rough terrain.
Internal cable routing with adaptable port covers keeps cables tight and secure and prevents water from entering the frame. The Search XR is also compatible with a wide range of configurations such as 1x or 2x drivetrains.
The Search XR aluminum models are spec’d with flared drop bars, with an available a flat bar model, and the Search XR Suspension features a 50mm gravel-specific SR Suntour suspension fork.
Generous tire clearance lets you customize your Search XR to the type of ride that best suits you, or the ride your planning on any given day. Larger tires provide more comfort and control on paved surfaces, and greater traction on off-road or gravel excursions. See Geo Chart for tire clearance details.
Multiple bottle cage mounts on the frame & fork, custom removable fender bridge mount, and stealth rack & fender mounting points expand Search XR’s versatility.
